Estancia El Palenque, Argentina: €8.2m
For those who dream of riding horses in the great outdoors without having to deal with roads or other restrictions, this spectacular ranch in the Chubut Province of Patagonia, a region of outstanding natural beauty, comes with 12,400 acres of land.
Located at the northern end of the Corcovado River valley and at the foot of the snow-capped Andes Mountains, 18 miles from the border with Chile, the ranch is exclusive and private, yet close to towns, and a commercial airport.
It comes with a 6km private stretch of river, offering superb float and wade fishing.
In terms of accommodation, there is a lodge and two cabins, as well as cottages for the ranch manager and other employees, all constructed in traditional Patagonian-style by local artisans using materials from the ranch itself.
There are also barns, corrals and other facilities to support a traditional cattle operation run by local managers and gauchos with experience ranching in the valley.
Timber harvesting contributes to the value of the ranch.
